Now contenders, Adamson Falcons embracing the pressure

Coach: Franz Pumaren
Last Season: 8-6 (Final Four)
Holdovers: Jerrick Ahanmisi, Robbie Manalang, Papi Sarr, Sean Manganti
Additions: Tyrus Hill, Koko Pingoy
Key Losses: Jaydee Tungcab, Harold Ng

After bursting into the Final Four last year, Adamson is now regarded as one of the contenders for this season’s championship.

Coach Franz Pumaren is well aware of that, and he believes that it’s time for the young Soaring Falcons embrace the challenge head-on.

“It’s important for us to start manning up, start accepting the pressure. The difference right now, probably, is that other teams will be preparing for us, unlike last season that they underestimated us because we’re consistent being at the bottom of the team standings,” he said.

With focus on consistency in his program, Pumaren has also set higher expectations for his team—from just merely trying to make the Final four to achieving higher than fourth place.
